Key moments so far
- Djenepo makes an instant impact of the bench to give Saints the lead
- Florin Andone has been sent off for a nasty challenge on Yan Valery
- Brighton had a first-half Dunk goal disallowed by VAR after an offside against Burn.
- Locadia strikes the post with minutes to go in the best chance for the hosts.
Yellow Card for Martín Montoya (Brighton & Hove Albion)
Montoya goes in the book after catching Djenepo.
Locadia hits the frame of the goal
The resulting corner from Bednarek's clearance presents a HUGE chance for Brighton. Murray heads the delivery down and Locadia smashes the outside of the post with a left-footed shot.
Gross's free-kick is cleared behind
Gross's free-kick comes in and Bednarek is there to flick it behind for a corner.
Yellow Card for Pierre-Emile Højbjerg (Southampton)
A yellow card for the skipper. Montoya had just nicked the ball away and he was slightly late with the challenge.
Propper's effort is wayward
The Dutch midfielder finds room again on the edge of the area but it's always rising.
Redmond and Djenepo combine
Redmond slides a pass into the path of Djenepo, who takes the ball into the box before being challenged by Dunk. The corner presents a chance for Adams but it's blocked.
Propper's effort is into Gunn's midrift
It's the hosts turn to come forward at the other end. Propper finds space on the edge of the area to shoot but it's a tame effort in all honesty and Gunn takes it into his chest.
Very nearly two!
Redmond picks up a loose ball and drives forward at Dunk, before sending a shot agonisingly wide of the post.
Montoya cross comes to nothing
Montoya's cross from the right goes deep towards Duffy, who climbs all over Ward-Prowse to try and get a header on goal. Free-kick.
Burn's challenge denies Adams
Ings feeds the run of Adams downn the right who has one thing on his mind, but before he can get a shot away across goal to test Ryan, Burn makes an impeccably timed tackle.
Short free-kick sees March fire over
With men waiting in the box, Brighton take their free-kick short to March who fires well over the crossbar.
Danso brings down Maupay
Maupay takes the ball down and is caught by Danso. A free-kick to come in from a promising position for the hosts.
Bednarek makes an important challenge
Brighton looking to respond immediately as a cut back into the box sees Bednarek make an important challenge, before Vestergaard clears.
THAT IS STUNNING!
Djenepo makes an instant impact off the bench. Ings switches the ball to the winger, who cuts inside from the left and curls a beauty beyond Ryan. GET IN THERE!!!!!
Moussa Djenepo (54’) | 0 – 1
Change imminent? 🤔
Moussa Djenepo looks to be getting ready to come off the bench for Saints here. Can he be the man to break the deadlock after his impressive cameo against Liverpool?
Trossard shoots wide
March steals the ball off Højbjerg and the hosts break forward. Maupay flicks the ball into the path of Trossard but his strike curls just wide.
March goes for goal
Brighton break away and March has Burn in support to his right, but opts to test Gunn with a low, left-footed strike that ends up being straightforward for the Saints stopper.
Trossard penalised for a foul on Valery
Trossard's challenge on Valery sees Saints awarded a free-kick. Gunn tries to steal a few yards and is berated by the home crowd before sending it down the pitch.
Back under way for the second-half
The hosts get us going for the second-half. COME ON YOU SAINTS!
HALF TIME: Brighton 0-0 Saints
It's all square at the break after a lively first-half. Andone has been sent off for an awful challenge on Valery, and the ten-man hosts then thought they'd taken the lead through Dunk's header. VAR to the rescue though, as Burn was blocking Gunn in an offside position.
Ward-Prowse's delivery runs all the way through
Not like Prowsey at all that one! He takes it right-footed but his delivery has far too much on it and it goes all the way over for a goal kick.
Burn brings Redmond down
Good pressure from Saints and as Redmond twists and turns in pursuit of space, Burn pulls him down and it's a free-kick. A minimum of three minutes added time is indicated as Ward-Prowse prepares to swing this over.
VAR Decision: Goal awarded for Brighton & Hove Albion [Lewis Dunk] was cancelled
Lewis Dunk heads home from a corner but after a VAR check, the goal is disallowed for an offside against Dan Burn.
Redmond's shot is saved by Ryan
Redmond picks up the ball in midfield and drives towards goal, before taking the opportunity to shoot. Ryan is down quickly and makes a comfortable save.
Red Card for Florin Andone (Brighton & Hove Albion)
Straight red card for Andone after a nasty challenge on Yan Valery.
Ward-Prowse heads clear
A deep March corner is headed back into a dangerous area but Ward-Prowse heads it away to safety.
Duffy's long ball finds Maupay
Duffy's long ball down the pitch is chased down by Maupay, who waits and plays the ball off Vestergaard for a corner.
Yellow Card for James Ward-Prowse (Southampton)
Ward-Prowse is first in the book. Andone looks to break away after the corner is cleared and the Saints midfielder brings him down rather cynically.
Vestergaard earns Saints a corner
Danso's long throw-in is flicked on by Vestergaard at the front post and it deflects off Burn for a Saints corner that's taken by Ward-Prowse but it is cleared.
Montoya heads wide
Trossard gets to the byline and clips a ball back into the box for Montoya, who gets his head on it but sees it go past Gunn's right-hand post.
Ryan is fortunate under pressure
Ryan takes too long on the ball and is shut down well by Danny Ings who blocks his clearance to cause panic momentarily.
Romeu fouls Andone
Andone is proving a handful so far and Romeu brings him down just past the halfway line for a Brighton free-kick.
Trossard's cross goes behind for a goal kick
Brighton build up the play, down the left but Trossard's final delivery isn't a good one and it goes out for a goal kick.
March's corner is dealt with by Saints
Successive corners for the hosts as Maupay sees his header deflect out off Bednarek, before Valery heads away March's inswinging delivery and Højbjerg can clear.
Bednarek thwarts Andone well
Andone is again looking to get in via the left channel but Bednarek makes an excellent challenge at the expense of a corner.
Maupay's effort is comfortable for Gunn
A purposeful attack from the hosts ends with Maupay stabbing a shot towards goal, but it doesn't have the power to trouble Gunn.
Gunn is caught by Andone
Florin Andone is in pursuit of a ball down the channel with Jan Bednarek. Gunn races out to clear and Andone catches him late on the knee. Free-kick.
Adams presses Ryan into a wayward clearance
Mat Ryan takes a pass back and is immediately pressed by Ché Adams, who forces the goalkeeper into a clearance that goes out for a throw-in. Decent start from Saints.
